: Anivia wall cancels channeling abilities when placed the right way
If placed right, it acts as a displacement (it can be a condition for Yasuo's ult if both time it nicely). I think it's very skill-based and a cool "gimmick" which shouldn't be changed.

: Hi King Manatee, It sounds like something in the background may be interfering. One way to potentially patch up without digging too hard into "what", would be to try in safe mode: * Press Windows Key + R to open "run" * Type "msconfig" and hit enter * Go to the "boot" tab, and check "Safe Boot" * Put a dot in "Networking" * Apply/OK, then restart * After your computer started, try to launch League of Legends **** * When complete, repeat these steps but uncheck "safe boot" to return to normal boot.

: eve countering?
Well, you can't really know when she'll gank by placing a ward in brushes, she requires a different sort of gank prediction. Generally, you need to know her position to be able to predict where she might move or gank next. Blue Trinket, Blue plant (Scryer's Bloom?), deep wards in her jungle or around the river area or counterjungling all work well because you're able to know where she is or where she's heading and adjust your playstyle accordingly. She's pretty similar to Twitch in that aspect, because the point isn't to know where he is when stealthed, but rather where and when he might pop up by knowing his current position.
: Low level games are terribly broken
I honestly don't know how the game gets new players, the experience really is horrible. Having been someone that enjoyed making various smurfs (Mainly one to play with each of my RL friends or family joining), it felt like I was getting matched with/against smurfs more often than with/against actual new players. I'm aware that smurfs tend to get matched against smurfs because of MMR, win ratio and what not, but even my first few games which decide those were generally packed with smurfs on both teams. I'm glad I started playing in Season 2, because there were much MUCH fewer smurfs back then and the game felt way more fair and balanced. I honestly don't think I'd play if I started around this time because, seeing those random players that get into smurf games and proceed to get stomped like there's no tomorrow just makes me sad.

Considering that the Rune system is supposed to be getting a rework sometime soon, I'd say that sounds like a good time to put 'em on sale if they'll still be used.

Not trying to be offensive, but all you did was spam E whenever it was up. I don't really see anything special, but might just be me...
: Serious problem : I don't know how to farm
I personally think that farming is closely related to how good you are at a champion, rather than how good you are at last hitting per se. It's about learning how much damage your champion can dish out with attacks (or spells) on minions, their attack speed, attack animation, attack frame, "clunkiness", etc... As for knowing how to manage farming with pushing, trading and other aspects you've mentioned, well, I guess that's something you learn just by playing the game. I mean, it becomes "muscle memory" to last hit that low health minion if you're able to. As other recommended though, I'd say use Practice tool.
: And thats why I lost my last 3 matches. Because I never know when someone may go afk on me. It could happen any time... in all of my matches.

: How to Fix Yasuo: Follow Up + Your Ideas!
I find W costing Flow and interesting mechanic. Maybe it wouldn't have to require 100 Flow as it would make it totally unreliable, but rather it could consume all flow and its **duration** or **size** would depend on the amount of Flow consumed. I'm not fond of the other changes. Although I have a fair amount of games on him, the only bad thing about him, in my opinion, is how it's really difficult to punish him to the point where he couldn't 1v1 you. Most champions, when punished hard in the early game, don't magically come back after PD + IE, regardless of whether they're 0/1 or 0/10.

: AP KOG MaW
I played with an AP Kog'Maw main a few weeks back, he knew what he was doing and he played the game almost perfectly. His strategy was farming up with Cull and stacking his Tear up, while playing solely under the tower, defending with E and R. I think he rushed Luden's Echo and at lv11, he was able to pretty much oneshot the enemy carry. It's a playstyle that seems really interesting and I would love to hear more experiences on it, just felt like sharing the game I had quite a while ago.

Hey, as far as I know, modifying your Client's language settings or similar is a bannable offence as well (May need someone to confirm or negate this), have you ever changed your Client language to, say, Korean? (I remember it was popular a few years back). Best of luck with resolving this situation.

: Smurfing is part of the game. I would rather see them practicing new champion in a lower division than on the highest level. If someone plays a champion for the first time in plat elo you basicly known who's going to win that game. Some people actually can play like bronze sometimes when playing a champion for the first time. Often those smurfs actually don't perform that well when testing out champions. The only thing that's better is their macro play. What actually is both enemy as ally should learn from. Easy baron, is probally the most common thing.

The only thing that's better is their macro play. What actually is both enemy as ally should learn from. Easy baron, is probally the most common thing. I tend to practice Champions in Normals, I don't make an Account that's lower than my division and stomp games there. Not saying that Smurfing shouldn't be a part of the game, it's not something that can be prevented really, because it will always be doable, moreso, suspending people for it is unreliable and rather dumb as well. I was just "lamenting" over how what they're doing makes the gameplay experience for 9 other players worse. Yes, free LP is nice, and yes, you may be able to learn something from them, it's still tilting the scales in one team's favor. That's the way I look at it. Though I respect your opinion, cheers.
Icepaw (EUNE)
: Note for smurfs
I agree, I personally dislike seeing Smurfs in my games, regardless of whether they're on the enemy team or on mine. If they're on the enemy team and actually stomp the game completely, it's just a sucky feeling because you're clearly not up against people on your own skill level, so the loss of LP and the match just feels forced. But yeah, they're not always on the enemy team, and when it happens that they're on mine, I personally feel like it's a very cheesy and undeserved victory, especially if the Smurfs (Which is often times the case) stomp the game or if I'm (which is often times the case) generally irrelevant in that game.
: My pre-game lobby was hijacked :C. Should I play league after studying?
Well, if you think that League has a high chance of causing stress, try playing a fewer amount of games. From my own, and lots of other people's experience, as soon as you start feeling stressed or "tilted", it's time to take a pause for the cause. As for people banning your champion in champ select, there really is a lot of reasons as to why they might've done it. Could be that they themselves are stressed, could be just "bullies", or perhaps it's a champ they dislike for any given reason; lost a game against it, lost a game with it in their team; random dislike for the champ. You're already doing a great job of muting people in-game, sadly there's no "cure" to ignore people banning your champ out. I suggest not to take it too hard and look on the bright side. As you said, you found out that you're pretty good at your secondary champion.

: Should I just become a vel'koz main already?
Not a Vel'koz player, but perhaps you should check out some guides or YouTube videos from people who are. It's cool because you'll genuinely always learn a thing or two, perhaps a different strategy, tip, combo, matchup, etc.
: Playing League does not feel like "playing"
Well, from my experience, there's very few games where you can absolutely suck and still get carried or vice versa, and yes, it does depend on your teammates. I like to think that it is luck-based, however, the luck factor depends on how good you are. If you're averagely skilled in your ELO, then you'll be somewhat reliant on teammates and generally stay where you are. If you're below averagely skilled, you should generally drop divisions or have trouble climbing. And lastly, if you're better than both your teammates and your opponents and deserve higher, you'll get there eventually, since the higher impact you have on the game (Not just your lane!), the lower the chances of you having to rely on your teammates. TL;DR There will always be luck included, but as you rise above the average skill level of your ELO, you'll be less reliant on that luck factor. That's at least the way I look at SoloQ and climbing.

: Few feature suggestions to add to the game.
1. Actually a nice idea 2. Not too important, but it was a nice touch, there was also a "section" for ARAM and Dominion (while it was still a thing) 3. There was lots of talk about more Bans on "Ask Riot", because I believe it's implemented in Competitive play, but not too sure about that one. 4. As someone who's got quite a few Champions on lv6/7, I can say that it's a bit dumb to get Blue Essence to spend on X champ when you got a Token from Y champ, the current system is fine. 5. Not that big of a deal.

Thanks for the reply, I managed to "solve" it by launching the Legacy Client instead. We ended up winning but it sucks because I lost well over 5 minutes of game time and it could've outright lost the game.

Ârzo (EUW)
: I'm just lost, pls give me advice, looking for a main champion
Well, I feel your pain. I'm the kind of guy who starts maining a champion, plays 50 Ranked games with him, then suddenly stops because either the Champ falls greatly out of favor (RIP AD Mid Ezreal, RIP AD Caster Varus, RIP AP Nida Mid, etc.), or I simply get tired of them. But one trend I've noticed is how I actually found champs which are considered; or which I considered to be garbage fun only after I learned their kits. In fact, most of those champs I mentioned above were ones I either hated or thought they were completely trash. Even my current "main", Xerath, is a champ I loathed for a long time. So I guess my point is to keep searching and eventually you'll find a champ that suits you. If not, maybe a rework or champion release might catch your eye and be your new main.

: why does every major rework end in a tank?
My guess would be the theme that the Developers agreed on the most worked best for a tank. Warwick's a bit of an oddball here, since he is a ferocious werewolf hunting his prey, but all the other ones you've mentioned (A big rock guy, a kind midget who tries to be strong and a big lump of meat with an axe) can best be designed as tanks. As for Yorick, his build hasn't changed much, other than him no longer getting Tear/Manamune and swapping Iceborn for Trinity Force, besides that, the old one built tanky as well after those two items.

: What is the best League content? (in your opinion)
Hey there! My personal opinion would be that anything works and is bound to be well-received by some audience (Likewise, it's bound to be a bit less well-received by other audiences) as long as it's entertaining. Now, what makes a video entertaining and fun is highly subjective, though my personal opinion is to be unique and try to bring something new to the table. For instance, seeing a montage which uses, say, memes or similar content in it is cool, sure, but after you've seen a few, the next ones just feel stale and not really worth a watch. Likewise, seeing educational content, game commentaries or whatever which use a format similar to others makes it very unattractive to watch. My recommendation would be to simply go with the flow and focus on something you enjoy making and think you'll be able to make enough of to neither be too frequent, but neither too sparing. Good luck with your channel and I'm looking forward to seeing your content here on the Boards! Kind regards, KM.
: REMOVE REMAKE IN NORMAL PLS
Getting a leaver in your games is as unpleasant and unfair in normals as it is in ranked and it should be a punishable offense, though as far as I know, it takes more leaves or /remakes in Normals to get punished than it does in Ranked.

: Kill or Assist?
It really depends on the team composition and the game in general. If putting pressure on your opponent on top and getting yourself fed/splitpushing/drawing enemy jungler's attention, etc. is generally a better idea, then go for it. If you can, you should try and roam if you think that'll be more advantageous, though if it means losing first tower for a measly kill or a Flash, it's, in most cases, not worth.

Hmm, I try to harass with Q early on because I grab Bandit (Mastery) and the 2 bonus gold/4 serpents from Q hardly ever matter, so I try to farm with Q (barrels) when the bonus is higher. Sapphire usually allows me to spam Q a bit more and get an earlier Sheen to continue the harass. When would you take Doran's over Sapphire?
